There are few musical artists that have managed to stay in the mind of popular culture like Tom Jones.

Some of this has to do with his timeless hits such as « She’s a Lady ». Other reasons that Tom Jones has managed to be so popular is that he constantly reinvents his sound.

Tom Jones was born in South Wales and was challenged early in life by a case of tuberculosis.

According to his own statement, his time fighting tuberculosis was the worst two years of his life and he was unable to do little but listen to music and draw.

A New Beginning

As he began to become more popular, Tom Jones recorded several early singles which led to him becoming well known not only in the UK, but also in the US where he enjoyed several top forty hits in both countries.

After some initial success the young singers popularity began to decline and he switched his style to more of a country sound which revitalized his career.

In the late sixties Tom Jones became one of several stars to begin headlining in Las Vegas. His shows became known for their sexual tension and raw energy.

During his time in Vegas, Tom Jones befriended Elvis Presley and the two became close friends.

At this time Tom Jones decided that he preferred the more lucrative club acts to cutting new records and it would be quite some time before he released a new album.

For a long time Tom Jones seemed destined to be a footnote in music history, however he enjoyed a rather sudden and strong resurgence in the late 80s and early nineties and has since remained at the forefront of the world wide music scene.
